It's one of my favorites ... not too many gluten-free foods are already prepared, it makes the sushi even better.

Just stay away from the ones with the fake crab. Most fake crab has gluten, but if you can check with the person making it and read the ingredients, it may be okay ... but don't trust it without reading.

I even eat the ones with fish ... And as Ursa said, check the soy sauce, it probably has wheat in it. I just use my own.

It's probably the soy sauce. I talked to the sushi chef at our Kroger and went through all the ingredients she used to make the sushi. Then I noticed the package had soy sauce in it, which explains the wheat.

They put Sushi Seasoning in the rice while boiling to make it stickier and tastier. It is a type of rice vinegar that contains wheat. It is better to double check. I haven't been able to find a sushi place that doesn't use rice vinegar with wheat listed as ingredient. :( Very sad... I LOVE sushi and havn't had any in months... :(

Many soy sauces contain wheat but you'll find some pretty good wheat-free soy sauce and wheat-free tamari sauce... that is if the soy itself doesn't give you problems...


Gluten intolerant - self diagnosed 2007 (not willing to do gluten challenge) and anemic

no dairy, soy, legumes, eggs, sugar, chocolate

no baked and processed foods (also gluten-free bakery) and high GI (due to hypoglycemia)

enjoy brown rice, buckwheat, quinoa and polenta instead

neurological symptoms flare up when glutened and in times of stress

following paleo diet, lots of raw fruit and veg, omega 3 oils, nuts

I feel heathy and able to function for the first time in my life. Thank God.

Organic food gives a great advantage.

Kefir rules!

On a mission to get rid of Candida overgrowth after a stressful event dropped my immune system. On a strict anti-candida diet using herbs and natural remedies. No meds or drugs to make it worse thanks.

always gotta check the ingredients. if there's a sauce on it, it could be an issue. a few wasabi's have wheat as a filler. fake crab is almost universally a problem, as is soy sauce. but there is some sushi that's a safe bet too.

Interesting, as I've never found a rice vinegar with wheat in the ingredients. You can always make your own sushi - the 'seasoning' is generally rice vinegar, rice wine (mirin), salt, and sugar.

Dear dublin1,

I have a treat for you! I just put together a list that beginners can have. When I went gluten free last August, I was terribly depressed. I had no idea what all we could have. Now I do. I want to save you the trouble of having to spend half of your day cooking and cleaning, and the other half on the phone with manufacturers!

1. There are a number of things in the regular grocery that are safe. Some things are labeled already. Wal-Mart's Great Value brand has numerous things you can eat.

2. For the love of God use Coupons on items you are allowed to eat. People can get them and print them out online even. Call some of the local stores and ask if they accept online coupons.

3. Check the ads online and in the newspaper. You would be surprised how many people do not do this.

4. Some items like rice flour and rice noodles are safe to buy at the Chinese or oriental market. The merchants are more than happy to help you if you cannot read the label.

Now, here is my list of great things to get you started:

Smart Balance Margerine

Dear Dub1,

You are so welcome! I know how big of a pain this can be in the beginning! Also, Progresso Creamy Mushroom Soup is safe. That will be great in so many things, especially casseroles! It also would be good with some Kraft Minute Rice and Chicken! That would make a great and tasty quick meal! Also, a safe handsoap that is safe for us is SoftSoap.

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl

P.S. If you need some recipes, just ask! I play around in the kitchen when possible! Cookies are my specialty! Speaking of, I better get some chocolate chips. I really want some chocolate chip cookies.

P.S.S. The Chocolate Emporium has great cake mixes for us, among other things. Their candies also have Kosher stuff that is gluten free, casein free, and some even soy free! Go to www.choclat.com to check it out.

NGG,You're my hero!! I'm still trying all this out,and it's still a shock ,here's a question,if you don't mind...Did you think that this could have been something else at 1st?? I'm still in the process of checking with my Doc,and I feel more self diagnosed right now than this is definate.I've felt a little better in the last few days as a result of this diet...I don't know if I'm jumping the gun,but I seem to have very few symptoms ,other than frquent "movements" within an hour after eating "regular" food...I'm a medical rookie,and I'm 37 and not sure what to ask for-Blood tests? or even a Colonostymy(sp?) I guess I just don't want to avoid the Colon test and have it be too late IF there's a problem...Would they do blood tests 1st or just go right to it???Sorry to bombard you,just kinda thinkin out loud!! Thanks, Dub
